It is an annual occurrence for us. The anniversary and the anniversary visit to the place we visited on our honeymoon.
It is easy to do because it is only a 25 mile drive to Hamilton Pool, the sunken river bed and grotto. The day today was just as beautiful as it was 45 years ago, when a friend lent us his red triumph Spitfire for the day and we took our first drive into the Texas Hill country.
Did I notice the Agarita, Mahonia trifoliata, in bloom?
Or the Mexican buckeye, Ungnania speciosa, about to burst into flower.
Surely I saw the the windflower, always the first bloom of the season.
Or was it that I only had eyes for one.
